As we near the new model year, the details on the 2019 Toyota Tundra are becoming clear. While we anticipate the majority of the Tundra lineup to remain the same, Toyota has revealed some mild updates for the TRD Pro version.
2019 Toyota Tundra Design
Inside and outside, we expect the huge majority of the 2019 Tundra models to look practically similar to the present variation. The one outlier will be the Tundra TRD Pro, which will get a few updates, consisting of new LED fog lights, “TOYOTA” grille, hood scoop, black-chrome exhaust ideas, 18-inch BBS wheels, and “TRD Pro” marking on the bed.
In spite of the fact that the 2019 Toyota Tundra is constructed on an architecture that was developed all the method back in 2007, the handsome and tough full-size truck still stays a strong seller for Toyota. Although an upgrade to a more modern platform wouldn’t hurt, Toyota seems of the state of mind that exactly what isn’t broken does not need repairing.
2019 Toyota Tundra Engine
Returning for 2019 is Toyota’s full-size pickup truck, the Tundra. As was the case last year, the 2019 Tundra is anticipated to be provided in SR, SR5, Limited, TRD Pro, Platinum, and 1794 Edition trims. A 4.6-liter V8 engine is basic, producing 310 horsepower and 327 lb.-ft. of torque, while a 5.7-liter V8 producing 381 hp and 401 lb.-ft. of torque with tow mode is booked for greater trims. A 6-speed automated transmission pair to both engines. Either 2- or 4-wheel drive is available, depending on the variation chosen.
2019 Toyota Tundra Features
For the Tundra TRD Pro, freshly added Fox off-road shocks change the Bilstein/TRD devices found in previous models. A range of different accents exclusive to the TRD Pro are discovered both within and out, including LED headlights. Fog lights are included for enhanced presence, and forged BBS wheels wrapped in meaty all-terrain tires are also part of the package.
Security is a glaring problem for the majority of pickups, and the present Tundra is no exception. The worst of the lot is the Crew Cab model, which the IIHS provided a “MArginal” rating in the small-overlap test and an “Acceptable” ranking in the roof-strength test. Add this to its “Marginal” headlight test and “Basic” front crash avoidance, and you can see why it’s so far from being a Top Safety Pick. We anticipate this to all remain the very same in 2019.
2019 Toyota Tundra Pricing & Release Date
We anticipate to see the 2019 Tundra in display rooms in the fall of 2018. Without any huge changes, we expect main pricing to remain just like the 2018 model’s range, which was $32,415 to $51,425 (destination fees included). The 2019 Tundra’s competition will consist of the Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado 1500, and Nissan Titan.
